1. Why play music?
Because, really, I have no choice. And I’d probably make a lousy brain surgeon…
2. Who are your influences?
Too many to mention, really. Musically, every note I’ve ever heard, from the cartoon jingles I listened to at 10, to the albums I wore out in college.
3. What is success?
To me success is doing what you love to do to the best of your ability with what you have at that given point in time.
4. Why should people buy your music?
Only if they think it will bring something positive to their lives.
5. Who do you love?
Family, friends and the perfect 3 minute pop song.
6. What do you hope to achieve with your music?
See answers 3 & 4
7. Who comes to your gigs?
Fine, fine melodic connoisseurs… oh, and professional quilters.
8. What is your favorite album?
Impossible question, changes daily.
9. What is your favorite song?
Again, totally impossible to say, by the time I’d figured it out, I’d have a new favorite.
10. How did you get here?
I started playing guitar in the 3rd grade and then I made a left at Denmark.
